Dear Friends & Family,


Happy Valentine's Day. If it's an awkward affair for you, as it is for so many, go ahead, be promiscuous ~ love everybody today. Make it like Thanksgiving, only with more wine and chocolate ~ and imagination ~ and no football. I think of the great Rupert Holmes song:


You're browsing through a secondhand bookstore

And you see him in non-fiction V thru Y

He looks up from World War Two

And then you catch him catching you catching his eye. 

And you quickly turn away your wishful stare

And take a sudden interest in your shoes

If you only had the courage, but you don't

He turns and leaves and you both lose. 


And you think about 

The people that you never get to love. 

It's not as if you even have the chance. 

So many worth a second life 

But rarely do you get a second glance 

Until fate cuts in on your dance. 


Still you're never gonna miss what you don't know

And you don't know who you'll meet at half past three

It could be a total stranger who looks something just exactly much like me.

One of the people that you never get to love... 


Enjoy the February issue (click HERE). See our picks for this week's activities (below). And stay alert ~ you never know what, or who, is just around the corner. It just might be your day to be audacious. Good luck!

Blog Updates
The other day, as I walked to the peeper pen to fill up the waterfowl's drinking and washing bucket with fresh water, the geese and ducks were out and about, and as I passed by them I noticed out of the corner of my eye that the Hisser--who earns her name everyday--was chasing after me, her neck snaking low to the ground, mouth open, tongue out. She was pissed. I don't think she likes me...(read more).
Each time I sit down to write this column I always ask myself, "What stories are the stars telling this week?" And because the sky often tells more than one story at a time, the task of translating planetary patterns into a coherent picture requires holding a strong enough eye and ear to sift and sort through major and minor interactions in the hope of identifying the key themes. Because my eyes and ears tend toward emotional and spiritual stories and because I'm more concerned more with causes and consequences than I am with quick fixes, I lean away from the mundane...(read more).
